Alcentro Trattoria celebrates its Sardinian roots

Domenico Fronteddu of Alcentro Trattoria

 

Diners at the newly opened Alcentro Trattoria in Bloomingdale are in for a rare treat. Included among the restaurant’s hearty, exotic dishes are several that come straight from the hearts of owner Domenico Fronteddu and chef Daniele Sotgiu, both of whom were born and raised in Sardinia. Among the regional specialties are linguine vongole e bottarga (clams, garlic, parsley, white wine, fresh tomatoes and imported fish roe), and macarrones de punzu (semolina dumplings, lamb ragu and pecorino sardo) as well as desserts with eye-catching names like seada and pane carasau.
